Snap Back to Reality

If you noticed it under a flurry of penalty flags, the New England Patriots beat the New York Jets yesterday, moving to 8-3 on the season.

Sometimes there’s small moments that occur in a game that end up making or breaking an entire season, a moment where a team either finds its way, or completely loses it.  It may end up being inconsequential, but to me, the Patriots found themselves yesterday.

Patriots Add Two Players to the Roster During their Bye Week

It looks like the Patriots are making some changes to the roster on defense. I honestly have low expectations; one is a rookie and the other hasn’t done much this season. Mid-season additions don’t always work out the best, unless you somehow become loved in New England like James Harrison did last year (what the fuck was that?). What can we expect from these additions? Continue reading “Patriots Add Two Players to the Roster During their Bye Week”

Trouble in Paradise?

I just want to make something clear REAL quick.  The definition of “trouble” for New England is unequivocally different than anywhere else.  Since Tom Brady started his first game for the New England Patriots in 2001, the team has only missed the playoffs twice, and in one of those years (2008), Brady was injured in Week 1, and did not play the rest of the season.  That’s 15 playoff appearances in 17 seasons.

Another way of looking at it? In that same amount of time, the Buffalo Bills have made the playoffs once, and lost their only playoff game in the Wild Card round.

Nevertheless, after losing 34-10 to the Tennessee Titans, things are not going as good as they should, and I think it needs to be talked about.

How Lucky is Boston?

As Andrew Benintendi roamed in left field to secure the final out of the American League Championship Series, the Red Sox cemented a World Series appearance for the 4th time in 15 seasons.

Imagine telling that to the faithful fans that had to watch Aaron Boone smack a home run off of Tim Wakefield in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS.

Imagine 15 years after that soul-crushing hit, where the Yankees looked poised to win their 5th championship in 8 seasons, that it would be the Red Sox – not the Yankees – with a chance to be the team of the century.

No one would have believed you… and well, that pretty much summarizes this crazy journey it has been being a Boston sports fan (not just a Red Sox fan) since the turn of the century.
